Legends about the Holy Grail are often connected to the British legends of King Arthur, and this episode is definitely about this. Except we’re not talking much about Arthur, since he never actually found the grail. Instead, we’re going to talk about a couple different versions of the Grail legend, the stories of Perceval and Galahad. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy learning Grail lore. You have chosen wisely!

The Myth of the Holy Grail. It’s held mankind spellbound for millenia. Recent research proves that there is likely much more truth to the legend than was previously suspected. The film makers set out on a captivating search for traces of the Grail in southern France—traces beginning in ancient times that end in the present. They visit the Grail Caves of Vicdessos and show fascinating images of the famous castle of Montségur in which the Cathar community met its cruel end. You will learn why the Nazis under Heinrich Himmler wanted to obliterate an entire village in order to execute a construction plan of unbelievable proportions: the building of a Grail Castle in the heart of Germany. The film also focuses above all on the mysterious story of a village in the Pyrennies of southern France: Rennes-le-Château. Its mysterious past has perplexed thousands of researchers to this day. In the year 1900 or thereabouts, the village priest, Abbé Berenger Saunière, is said to have found the Holy Grail. He is supposed to have left us a landscape model, a „maquettte“, on which the grave of Joseph of Arimathea is inscribed.

Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... For 2000 years successive generations have been gripped by a quest. A quest, championed by King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, for a sacred cup which will provide it’s finder with immortality and total enlightenment. This is the greatest treasure hunt of all, a journey through some of the most historic and mysterious sites in Britain. The Quest for the Holy Grail. The search for the Holy Grail has taken questers around the world, but one of the most enduring legends tells us that the Grail was brought to Britan by Jesus Christ’s great uncle, Joseph of Arimathea. When Jesus was dying on the cross, Joseph held a bowl to his side, collecting the blood of Christ. After Christ died Joseph was visited by the Archangel Raphael who told him to bring this sacred bowl, this Holy Grail, to the Blessed Isles of the West, Britain. Once here the chalice was said to be hidden in the most holy place in the land. Ever since the search has been on to find the Holy Grail. The story is shrouded in the mists of legend and the quest continues to this day weaving a spectacular path across some of the most dramatic and mysterious sites in Britain. Glastonbury, where the water flows red from the blood of Christ. Tintagel, birthplace of King Arthur, and home to Merlin. Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, a sacred treasure trove which closely guards its holy secrets including, possibly, the Holy Grail. “Quest for the Holy Grail”, is a documentary, from the “World of Mysteries” series.

Credit goes to Lee Rosevere over at mixcloud.com for actually finding/compiling all the music. https://www.mixcloud.com/leerosevere/monty-pythons-holy-grail-original-score/ The most comprehensive compilation of the film score for 1975's Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There exists no official release for the music used in the film and finding the music is exceptionally difficult without knowing what you're looking for. The vast majority of the score used for Holy Grail is actually a collection of music licensed from the De Wolfe Music catalogue. Though there was original music created for the film by Niel Innes, they were used for more minor roles in the film (the wedding music, Sir Lancelot approaching the castle, Intermission, etc). This video doesn't contain every piece of music used in the film (hence, the "most" qualifier). If a particular piece of music is missing, it's because I couldn't find it. Track List 1.

One of the most beautiful and artistic scenes, (one of many throughout the film) where Percival retrieves the Holy Grail for Arthur, who upon drinking from it exclaims, "I did not know how empty my heart was, until it was filled." Forget the modern special effects of today, this was pure brilliance as you see the Holy Grail in focus throughout the scene and with it, filling up with the precious blood of Christ, the messiah and savior of man's soul. Filmmaker John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory) completely delivers THE BEST retelling of the story of Arthur and his round table of Knights and in the most artistically beautiful way!

See also Henry Lincoln's 1979 documentary, The Shadow of the Templars, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_TwfpFXz6A A small paperback bought by Henry Lincoln changed his life. The story of a then little-known village in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the now famous Rennes-le- Chateau. Henry Lincoln made three television documentary films for the BBC series, Chronicle. In 1972 "The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem" was the first anyone outside France had ever heard of this extraordinary story, and followed in 1975 by "The Priest, the Painter, and the Devil" then "The Shadow of the Templars" in 1979. Lincoln brought in Richard Lee and Michael Baigent, which led to the bestselling book 1982, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. 1,000 miles NNE of Rennes-le-Chateau finds us in the Baltic Sea on a tiny Danish island called Bornholm. The Danish institute for map production, the Kort & Matrikelstryrelsen, uses the crosses on the spires of the island's fifteen churches as trig points. Their positions are therefore published and known to the millimetre. What makes the churches on Bornholm unique is that four of them have a circular ground plan, which flags up the possibility of certain historical associations for the churches. But it was the symbolic elements of this fact that inspired Haagensen to ask the question: "is there a geometric relationship between the churches themselves?" What is worrying about the Bornholm geometry is that not only is its existence confirmed mathematically and statistically, thanks to the accuracy of the available trig point data, but that it displays a sense of purpose. Since Bornholm has set the benchmark for absolute geometric conformity so high, there will remain some question marks over the Rennes-le-Chateau geometry until is confirmed to the same accuracy. Moreover, despite its complexity and elegance, the Rennes-le-Chateau geometry seems more creative and expressive a work of art while Bornholm's geometry reads like a blueprint. The positions of the fifteen churches of Bornholm are the key to a complex, cohesive geometric design that, on the ground, is over 20 miles across. The design can be reproduced on a sheet of paper by anyone equipped with a straight edge, a compass and a simple set of instructions. But what really sets it apart, what demands that the whole phenomenon must be taken seriously from a historical and archaeological point of view, is that this design demonstrates an answer to a mathematical problem once though to be insoluble. The Bornholm geometry demonstrates knowledge. It demonstrates how to create angles, it demonstrates how to create Pi, it demonstrates the golden section and the whole interlocking harmony of the circle, the triangle, square, pentagram, hexagram, etc., etc.. To us it must also demonstrate that whoever constructed this design must have regarded this knowledge as secret knowledge, sacred knowledge. Why else hide it so elaborately? The geometry of both Rennes-le-Chateau and Bornholm indicates an extraordinary commitment of manpower and surveying skill to the preservation of what? With our modern perspective it is difficult to see what could be deemed so extraordinarily special about geometry and its properties that renders it imperative to hide its secrets so obscurely and so permanently. One thing consistent to both Bornholm and the Rennes-le-Chateau area is how strongly the Knights Templar figure once the histories are investigated. The fact of the round churches is a hallmark of Templar influence and, interestingly, the name Bornholm is a diminution of the original name of the island Burgunderholm. It is said that the Burgundians originally came from Bornholm and one of the most famous Burgundians was Bernard of Clairveaux protector of the Knights Templar. The Grand Master of the Knights Templar after Bernard's death was one Bertrand de Blanchefort and Blanchefort is the name given to the mountain adjacent to Rennes-le-Chateau in the pentacle of mountains. from Rennes-le-Chateau - look again, by Michael Bott http://www.mysterymag.com/theunexplained/?page=article&subID=85&artID=210

Watch my new videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/NoSmallPartsShow The Twelfth of my Re-enactment series. This is a reenactment of one of many GREAT scenes found in the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." I'm a big fan of Monty Python. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, lemme 'splain. King Arthur is searching the land for knights to join his court at Camelot. He comes across a peasant named Dennis, who proceeds to tell him his views on government. This is the first re-enactment I've done where I play three people: King Arthur, and two peasants. With the peasants I wrapped myself up in a wide variety of quilts and blankets... with King Arthur... well, I literally had nothing that closely resembled what Graham Chapman wore in the movie. So, T-Shirt it is. The editing is what was really useful. I had to cut almost all of the dead space to make it seem really fast-paced. That's the thing with British comedy: they have the ability to cram over 10 minutes of dialogue into 2 minutes or less. It's insane, really. My only regret with this one: I said the word "aquatic" wrong. In the movie, Palin says "aQUAHtic" instead of "aQUOHtic..." if that make sense. You hardcore Pythonians know what I mean.
